PHOTOS: 20 adorable queer couples celebrating Valentine’s Day

David Reddish

Valentine’s Day has arrived, and while those of us in couples fret over what to buy our baes, and those of us who are single contemplate how to celebrate “Singles Awareness Day” (and we’ve all been there), we should all keep in mind how far the queer community has come in proving love is love.

Like these folks. These adorable couples have decided to show off their affections in honor of the Hallmark holiday via Instagram. Normally that kind of romantic exhibitionism can invite an eye roll or ten, but today, take satisfaction in knowing that, in light of the current political climate, love stands firm and will not hide. Now, if everyone would just get off their ass and vote as if their love depended on it…
